Per Jeff Wilson, Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

Texas vs. RHP Justin Masterson

  1. 2B Ian Kinsler
  2. SS Elvis Andrus
  3. LF Josh Hamilton
  4. DH Michael Young
  5. 3B Adrian Beltre
  6. RF Nelson Cruz
  7. 1B Mitch Moreland
  8. C Mike Napoli
  9. CF Endy Chavez

Cleveland vs. RHP Alexi Ogando

  1. CF Michael Brantley
  2. SS Asdrubal Cabrera
  3. RF Shin-Soo Choo
  4. C Carlos Santana
  5. DH Grady Sizemore
  6. 2B Orlando Cabrera
  7. LF Travis Buck
  8. 1B Matt LaPorta
  9. 3B Jack Hannahan

Pretty much the same lineup from Thursday's 7-4 Rangers in, just with better pitchers. The Rangers also likely improve their offense with the addition of Mike Napoli, but Napoli over Yorvit Torrealba is less of a step forward when a right hander is on the mound.
